INSIGHT: Innovations in Indoor Air-Quality Monitoring Reduce Risks

airthinx

Americans typically spend 90 percent of their time in one of 4.5 million commercial buildings, so indoor air quality is an important environmental health area to address, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Advancing technologies and the public’s growing awareness of this health issue are driving an expansion of indoor air quality monitoring. Low-cost devices coupled with favorable “green policies” and recommendations from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health are giving indoor air quality monitoring technologies the jolt they need to address growing public concerns.

A simple way to pass your WELL certification

airthinx

The WELL building standard by IWBI measures verifies and monitors building features that impact health and well-being and is based on ten principles, including Air, Thermal Comfort, Ventilation, and Materials. In 2016, Deloitte reported there are a growing number of WELL certification specifications in requests for proposals. This year IWBI launched WELL V2, incorporating findings from over 1000 existing WELL projects and human health research over the last four years. The ROI of WELL certification is judged on the basis of increased property values and the health of a building’s occupants.

Breathe Easier with Indoor Air Quality Monitoring

airthinx

Indoor air quality is one of the many emerging topics of environmental health and green building. Humans spend more time indoors than out, therefore the air we are breathing while inside is critically important to our health. As we become more aware of the health impacts of not having a clean breathing environment, products are emerging on the market to allow for safer building materials, cleaning products, and cleaner air. Indoor air quality is one of the factors that the WELL building standard focuses on, as it directly relates to people’s lives and prosperity.

What goes up may not come down, might be the case for CO2 levels aboard airplane flights

The cost of unhealthy air just soared to new ‘heights’, since you can’t place a value on human life. While the implications of unhealthy air are well documented at this point, less so is the nature of indoor air quality and its monitoring on airplanes, a built environment that typically faces more imminent threats. If you’re someone that spends a lot of time on airplanes, air quality is as important on flight as it is in ones home.

Airthinx helps students identify pollution in housing

Over the years we have become better educated on how to live a healthier lifestyle by consuming “better” food and exercising. However, that’s only a part of the equation. Just as important and an often overlooked criteria for health is the air that we breathe. The 9 most prevalent indoor air pollutants in the home are Particulate Matter 1.0, 2.5 and 10 microns in size, Carbon Dioxide, Volatile Organic Compounds, Formaldehyde, Temperature, Humidity and Pressure.

Forbes: Exposing Indoor Air Quality: Monitoring And Energy Efficiency Are Helping

airthinx

Harmful pollutants are spewing everywhere, including indoors. And while the focus is on those external emissions created by power plants, industrial facilities and automobiles, there is solid reason to turn inward: The level of volatile organic compounds — gases from solids and liquids — is 10 times greater indoors than it is outdoors. That’s according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which adds that dirty air, generally, inside of commercial and residential buildings is two-to-five times greater than what is outside.
